North Dakota Auditor Josh Gallion recently referred two of his recent audits to law enforcement for investigation for possible criminal charges.
One was related to the withholding of email records at the North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton. The Cass County State’s Attorney reviewed the matter and reported not finding any infractions which rose to the level of a crime.
The other was related to the process behind the development of a new state logo and brand.
As I was the first to report yesterday, that matter (involving the Commerce Department) has been referred to law enforcement in South Dakota for investigation. Commerce Commissioner Michelle Kommer told lawmakers at a committee meeting today that she has secured private legal counsel and that she doesn’t believe anything criminal happened.
